  1. Mac OSX on Acer Aspire One D270-28DWS_32_6C

    Did either of you ever get it working on this model?
  2. [Help] Dell Latitude E6400

    Thanks -- you don't just have the admin password for that user? I managed to switch it to english just by going through menus and guessing. nevermind that worked fine. Thanks

    Hi there, -- thanks for making the image. I'm booted in but I'm stuck i polish as well -- the password "password" is not working on the default user... nor is "dell"
  5. Trackpad and Keyboard randomly freeze

    Did you ever figure this one out? It's a problem that has plagued me since I've had this laptop (same one as you) I've seen it written up that interrupt requests are to blame and that certain versions of AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext or ApplsPS2Controller.kext will fix this...
  6. [Help] Dell Latitude E6400

    Thanks for the tips koliberK -- I couldn't find the DSDT in the archive with your kexts. I made my own DSDT with the GUI patcher but using your kext setup and the pmset command, I still can't get my system to sleep (and wake). I have never succeeded in this with this computer -- e6400 with Quadro Cheers edit: Nevermind... found the dsdt in the second link with kexts. Going to try it now to see if sleep works edit2: it worked! But it will only sleep & wake once. If I try to sleep & wake a second time in a given uptime, it will fail the second time. It seems to lose the sleep mode setting as it makes a different noise like its shutting down the second sleep. edit3: Also I can't load the VoodooPS2 kext that you included... any tips there? I can use my trackpad just fine with ApplePS2 when i erase the trackpad plugin within it... but there is no side-scrolling or configuration of any kind which is annoying.
  7. Everything works great for me except Shutdown now, following the tips in this thread -- except: does anyone experience an issue (in 10.6.4) where the keyboard and mouse stop working? The external USB mouse still works but the keyboard just stops responding. It happens to me in a matter of time every time I use the computer.. i'm forced to restart. Any ideas?
  8. GMA X4500

    Missing some context to know just how excited to be about this... was very close to ditching my laptop for another this weekend.
  9. GMA X4500

    Is anyone able to sleep their display on gma x4500 mhd (with native resolution / quartz gl or not)? Given that these are laptops I'm sure that's a feature high up in the list for everyone short of getting QE working...
  10. GMA X4500

    This finallly worked for me after no other native resolution method has! Finally -- on a Dell Latitude e6400 with gmax4500mhd!
  11. GMA X4500

    It seems that all Dell "E" series laptops have this problem (black screen). I would add that it is not just a black screen -- the LCD appears to be powering off (as opposed to illuminating black)... Mines Latitude E6400
  12. GMA X4500

    Perhaps not directly related to QE/CI -- but does anyone here have SLEEP working, either just display sleep or system sleep with x4500 (mhd in my case)? I'm happy leaving the resolution and acceleration unfixed.. its just a pain to have the screen on all the time. Is this dependent on having a working driver? It just locks up when you try to system sleep, and it tries then fails when trying to sleep video. Is there any simple way to diagnose this unrelated / less complicated than this QE/CI issue? Thanks so much again for working on this
  13. GMA X4500

    Awesome -- I will try the external monitor when I'm next home but I suspect it won't work because its not as though the system is responsive still but just no video -- the caps lock indicator, sound adjustment keys etc all stop working full stop. I'm just happy there's hope -- i had been considering swapping the motherboard for an nvidia equipped one for ~$300 before realizing that is crazy.
  14. GMA X4500

    Just wanted to report, FWIW, (bear with me, there are a few threads here) The latest and every script I have tried with my ideneb 10.5.7, and GMA X4500 MHD (Dell Latitude e6400) device id 24A2 Starts up, loads blue desktop screen, then the LCD appears to power off and the system halts completely, presumably when trying to switch resolution to native (1600x1200 is for this card & set up) I've messed with it so many times it always ends up corrupting my system files and I have to reinstall ideneb. And I'm not sure if this has been discussed, but under linux there is both a dev ID 24A2 AND 24a3 -- setting the script to the latter, 24a3 does nothing. If I recall, one is a VGA device and one is a graphics controller (according to lspci linux ID lookup anyways) And lastly a question: Do those who have this working with FB have the ability to sleep their display / machines? I've never been able to and its the major hurdle from using OSX86 on this laptop as main OS. It seems to get stuck at trying to sleep the display when trying to sleep the system, and when I try to sleep display directly it just stutters a bit and stays awake. Not sure if having a kext loaded with FB would affect that or if it has to do with some ACPI kext or something. Thanks so much for working on this --- any help I can provide I will gladly do in linux / windows / osx86
  15. GMA X4500

    Well here's my $40 CAD pledge to anyone who makes a x4500 mhd card work.... which is like $47 USD
